Pinnacle 11.1 Editing Problems
As a complete beginner I read some of the reviews posted on Pinnacle 11 plus and went with this, and have upgraded to 11.1. Thought that from all the system requirements I was ok running Vista, Processor - AMD Turion(TM) 64 X2 Dual-Core TL-60(2.0GHz/1MB), Graphics Card - 256MB NVIDIA(R) GeForce(R) Go 7200.
I can’t edit any of the captured video as I receive an error message “This computer may not have enough graphics card memory for HDV Capture”
HP tells me that as it’s a laptop theres no upgrade. As its only 2 months old I really can’t justify or afford a new laptop.
Am I doing something really stupid (probably, yes)? Do I have any options?
Any help to this novice would be much appreciated.
Try www.pinnaclesys.com. Both the LiveChat or the Forum should give you an answer.
You could "capture" in DV instead of HDV, the quality loss is small and you can burn DVDs directly.
OR Have you tried another editing package. I understand that a trial version of Vista is available free.
I know that Studio is sensitive to hardware configurations. If this message is valid for Studio would not the same be true for other editing packages? Others, wiser than I, will surely reply!!!
I note in the user manual that Studio requires 256MB either a Radeon9600+ or a NVIDIA GeForce 6 is recommended - yours should work?!? Get on to Pinnacle.

I have Studio 11 Ultimate and i CAN capture in HDV, altough a message say's that there might be insufficent graphical memory.
Only when I want to do something with special effects, like PIP, the program doesn't like the 64MB and simply doesn't apply the effect.
I now just capture in standard DV with the cam on DV-Locked.
And must say I can hardly see any different. (Mainly because I don't have yet a HDTV or any other capable equipment to view full HD material.
Thanks guys I really appreciate the help. Stefan I'm using the DV-Locked output and this works!
I've also posted to the Pinnacle forum as suggested by Terfyn and will share any response.
